Comments
It’s working out great everybody that looks at it wish they had one I think it’s a great safety item for if you have stairs going up into your RV
Renton - 05/31/2022

This handrail is great.It makes it much easier for my wife to get in and out of our motor home.It was easy to install and looks good.Very sturdy handrail.


Comments
The handrail is still working great.It still looks like new, no rust still shines. My wife uses it every time she goes in and out of the motor home.
Ken - 10/14/2018


by:

This product is well made and very sturdy. I would have given it a 5 star if it came with instructions. This handrail should aid my wife getting in and out of our motorhome, she had a stroke years ago and has a balance problem. The only thing I don't like is etrailer lowered the price $31 after I received my order, bad timing.




by:

I just received my Solidsteps and stainless hand rail both products where easy to install and for me that was good look forward to many years of use
Thanks again to Noah at etrailer great job




by:

Product functions as stated. I needed longer screws to secure it to my camper.




by:

Well made and all of the parts were on the package. Free shipping was fast and it was well boxed, with no damage. I am actually using it in the residential setting. Has a lot of different applications besides travel trailers.




by:

We don't actually use these on an RV, we use them in the garage. We've installed them next to the three step staircases that lead from the garage to the kitchen and from the garage to the back storage room. (We just installed them on one side of the stairs -- the same side as the door handles.) They are very solid since we were able to screw the mounting blocks into the studs for the doorways. It was nice not having to try to drive any anchors into the concrete floor since they mount on the wall as opposed to a traditional stair rail. We also like the idea that we can fold them out of the way if we need to get a large item through the door or any other time a traditional railing would get in the way.




by:

I ordered two of these last year and mounted one outside the door and one inside the door of our motorhome. They are priceless! Because of these my 83 year old grandmother can travel in her motorhome with family again. She was having trouble getting in & out, until I installed these awesome grab bars. They installed very easily & securely, folds away perfectly when driving, excellent stainless steel durability, great design, can't recommend them enough. I am very happy with them to say the least. Giving the confidence & freedom of independence to travel again has been priceless to my grandmother & family.




by:

etrailer is always quick with shipments, the handrail arrived a day earlier than estimated. It fit the original brackets on my 5th wheel, so no extra holes in the wall. If the original composite brackets don't withstand the additional leverage I can always convert to the brackets provided.


Comments
I installed this longer handrail because my wife had taken a fall with the old handrail. We really like the additional length. It is working great, still on the original composite brackets.
Bob G - 08/15/2017


by:

Was easy to install no drilling on our Montana 5th wheel ,same manufacturer as the original handrail so same screw hole pattern just unscrew old one and install. bingo done
Wife has put her stamp of approval on it as she is unsteady on her feet and this one has a longer extension so she is able to grasp it on her way up the stairs sooner




by:

It didn't have any instructions on how to assemble the brackets that bolt to the trailer . springs nuts washers with no instructions on how they went. I was able to use my original brackets after I ran my drill through the old bracket and new handle in position. It is a great addition to our trailer. It is really nessasry for 5th wheel with 4 steps.




by:

Much more heavy duty than the aluminum and plastic hand rail that came on the RV. Out of the box, the mounts did not line up with the existing position on the RV wall. I squeezed the mounts toward each other about 3/4 inch and every thing lined up. The holes lined up with the two already in the RV, I drilled four more pilot holes and installed the screws. Mounted up solid! My only complaint is that the bolts that go thru the mounts to the thumb screws tend to slip against the stainless tubing when you tighten the thumb screws. I used a little super glue to secure the bolt heads, a machined recess would be nice out of the factory.




by:

I am very happy with my new hand rail. I received it quickly from etrailer and put it on my 5th wheel. The original railing had 4 screws attaching it so I had to drill 4 additional holes. Everything needed was in kit. Very simple. The entire installation took less than 10 minutes. It works great with my 4 step entry. Looks great too.




by:

Fit perfectly whare the old one was. It seems to be very sturdy.


Comments
I had to replace the pins with bolts and nylon nuts as the clips on the pins kept popping off if you pushed up to hard when turning the handle.
Tom - 08/25/2021


by:

I'm very satisfied with the hand rail and have already installed it. The installation was very easy, and I'm a happy customer.




by:

Bought this for my mother who is elderly and my sister who has MS. They needed a hand rail that would fasten to the wall and could move out of the way when we needed to move something in and out the door. This worked perfectly! It is designed for a motor home or travel trailer, but worked perfectly in the garage of my mothers home. She did not want to drill holes in the concrete to mount a traditional rail so this worked great. I had to fasten a block to the wall because the mounting bracket was to wide for a standard stud. I mounted a block across 2 studs and mounted this to the blocks. Well made and fairly sturdy. Much sturdier than the aluminum and plastic block one on my travel trailer.




by:

Great addition. Only problem was the hardware. Should have been stainless steel. The galvanized steel bolts react w/ alumimnium. Added a backing plate




by:

My wife recently had hip surgery and coming down the four steps from our Toy Hauler made her uneasy as the stock hand rail was not long enough.

Installed with ease in about 20 minutes.
4 of the 8 existing holes lined up but that was not an issue as the screws provided we self taping and long enough to provide a solid install.

Had my wife try exiting and re-entering the rig and she really likes this rail...feels very sold and safe.

Seems well build and looks great!
Really like that it folds back for travel like the original...

Good investment/addition

Also, I really appreciate the ease of the order process and followup by a rep with customer service...

The only thing so far that would make this even better would be a rubber grip the entire length...like what comes on the standard rail supplied by the OEM.

That said we have ordered some rubber wrapping from E-Trailer...




by:

Fit perfect without drilling new holes. This handrail replaces an ITC unit that the plastic catch locks broke off of. The all aluminum brackets are a good upgrade.




by:

Very well built product arrived very qu ickly




by:

Absolutely love this handrail for my trailer. It has created safety for my wife ,great grandkids as well as myself. It also looks great and make it easy to enter and exit my RV thanks and I would highly recommend this product




by:

This hand rail was even better quality than expected. Local rv dealers should learn to carry quality instead of the cheap stuff they might even sell some. This was even well priced for the quality. I will never need another one. My wife loves the better length access as well. Extremely pleased with all portions of the sale including follow up.




by:

This is exactly what I needed. They price was right and no shipping charge. I have started buying all my trailer supplies from etrailer.com. Thanks




by:

Perfect replacement for the original hand rail and gave the added length for the new steps.




by:

Better than expected! I use this for the steps from our garage into our house. It's solid, looks great and can be swung out of the way if needed for added room in a small 2 car attached garage.

See what our Experts say about this Stromberg Carlson Accessories and Parts



  • Does Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail Fit Certain RVs and Trailers or Is it Universal
    It is possible that the Stromberg-Carlson had rail # AC-530 will fit the stock brackets on your 5th wheel trailer. But this is considered a universal fit item. But if if the rail part does not happen to fit the brackets or the bracket spacing, the unit does come with its own brackets that you can use.

  • How Much Does the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail Weigh
    The Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail part # AC-530 will add 5 lbs to the weight of your trailer.

  • Replacement Hardware for Stromberg Carlson Folding RV Handrail
    The hardware for the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail # AC-530 is no longer available as a kit. You would have to purchase the entire kit. If you will be drilling and mounting into a stud you will only need the correct screws which are as follows. (6) #14 x 3” Phillips head mounting screws, (2) #8-32 x 3/8” pan head screws for securing mounting bracket covers.

  • Replacement Handrail for Winnebago Sightseer Class A
    The Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail # AC-530 could be used as a replacement for the handle on your 2007 Winnebago Sightseer Class A, and if you've already got a similar Stromberg Carlson handle on your coach it's likely that this is a direct replacement. We don't have a database that tells us if parts like this were used on your coach, but I can tell you that this handle has 24.625" between the two arms that mount to the coach. I've linked a photo that shows these dimensions, as well...

  • Does The Stromberg Carlson AC-530 Hand Rail Come With Metal Or Plastic Mounting Blocks?
    The Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail for RVs # AC-530 will come with hardened plastic mounting blocks. This does not by any means suggest weakness though, and they are rated up to 200 pounds. These mounting blocks are also lockable, which is a very nice feature.

  • Stromberg Carlson Folding HandRail Recommendation for RV with Triple Step
    For a triple step the better suited hand rail option is the part # AC-530 which is 38 inches tall. The part # AC-544 would be a bit too tall and would not be ideal.

  • Handle Recommendation for Use with Lippert SolidSteps
    We have hand rails like the part # AC-530 that can be installed on your RV that would work well with the SolidStep part # LC678025 that you referenced. But we do not have a step setup that fits directly to the Soidsteps.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Camco RV Handle # CAM42175 when Folded Outward from the Trailer?
    The dimensions of the Camco Fold-Away RV Grab Handle - Aluminum - Black # CAM42175 when folded outward is 14-1/4 inches from the side of the trailer. For a handle that extends to at least 21 inches, I recommend the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail for RVs # AC-530. The Stromberg Carlson handrail gives you 23.9 inches of length from your trailer's side. In addition, the handrail has the same folding capability as the Camco Fold-Away handle.

  • Handle for Horse Trailer for Easier to Get In and Out of
    Hardware is not provided with the Easy Grip Assist Handle # PLR6612-A since most applications are unique enough that one set of hardware would not fit every application well. You would not need a gasket setup either. Another option you might like is a larger folding handle like the Stromberg Carlson part # AC-530 which is much bigger. I attached an install video for this as well.

  • Handrail Option for RV with Lippert SolidStep RV Steps
    We have hand rails like the part # AC-530 that can be installed on your RV that would work well with the SolidStep part # LC678027 that you referenced. But we do not have a step setup that fits directly to the Soidsteps. The SolidSteps were designed to give you a much wider step that's also incredibly stable so typically a hand rail isn't quite as needed.

  • Installation and Hardware for Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail for RVs
    The Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail for RVs, # AC-530 is a complete kit, it has the needed mounting hardware. The rail and mounting hardware are not sold separately. To install, you must make sure that the rail's mounting blocks are positioned in front of a wall stud or the blocking behind the door.

  • SolidStep Fold Out Steps For 2013 Coachman Chaparral 5th Wheel
    Since your door way width at the narrowest point is 30” and your entry height is between 35” to 44”, then the Lippert # LC791575 Solid Step is the best fit. With bigger steps you may want to consider a bigger hand rail support. The Stromberg Carlson # AC-530 Folding Handrail is the perfect solution. It is easy to install and is very strong. When you install the SolidStep it will just be natural to remove the old rattle-bang stock steps that came on your trailer. The Lippert # LC664640...

  • Solution for Handrail on 2020 Coachman Prism
    If you want to install a handrail on your 2020 Coachman Prism it will have to mount to the side. The design of your TreadLite PowerStep will not work with the Stromberg Carlson Rail Mate # AP-101. As you already saw, there is no surface to install that mounting plate. Instead, I recommend a rail like the # AC-530 or # AM-533. This will mount next to your door and can fold down when not in use.

  • Recommended Hand Rail For 2017 Triffin Motorhome Steps
    For your 2017 Triffin Motorhome with two retractable steps, I recommend the Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle for RVs - White Rail with Black Foam Grip - Aluminum # AM-200 or the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail for RVs - Stainless Steel - 38" Tall - 200 lbs # AC-530 which will give you support at a lower level as well. These hand rails bolt on to the wall stud of your coach and includes the hardware. I recommend the Foam Grip Wrap for Lend-a-Hand Grab Handles for RVs # FP-1002-R to...

  • Removable Handrail Compatible with Lippert Solid Step # LC678027
    The SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps # LC791575 does not have a handrail that is available as an add on part. However, you may want to consider using the Aluminum Hand Rail for 4 Step Scissor Stair # AHR4 that will give you a 43 inch removable handrail. You will need to determine how to attach it to the steps as it is designed for the scissor steps. I've attached a video to assist. Your other option is to use a folding handle that may be longer than your current RV handle. For this...

  • Recommended Handrail for Fleetwood Bounder Motorhome
    The hand rail with the largest handle would be the Stromberg Carlson # AM-533 you'd looked at. The hand rail also features a padded handle on the lower end of the bar for a comfortable grip when you're climbing that first step. I have no way of knowing what hole spacing was used for the handrail on your motorhome, the manufacturers don't keep track of that information so there's no way to look it up. However, I've provided a photo showing how the mounting holes are spaced for you. Each...
